England, September 28 - October 5
On Saturday I fly back from Edinburgh to London, staying overnight on the 28th at Copleston House again.
Sunday September 29 I take the train to Oakham and from there get a ride to Launde Abbey, East Norton, Leicestershire LE7 9XB, where I will be directly a week-long retreat based on a series of popular astronomy talks and nighttime stargazing/prayer experiences. For more details, see http://www.laundeabbey.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/2013-Programme-Copy.pdf And scroll down to page 21.

I have one more night in London, on the Saturday (October 5) following the retreat.
Denver, October 6-9
On Sunday, October 6 I fly to Denver to attend the annual AAS/Division for Planetary Science conference. My poster is up on Tuesday. I'll be staying at the local Jesuit school, Regis University
Tucson, October 10-13
Thursday October 10 I fly to Tucson for the Vatican Observatory Foundation board meeting (Friday) and our trip to see the telescopes (Saturday).
Finally, on Sunday, October 13, I fly back to Rome, arriving Monday morning
I'd be happy to get together with anyone who might be around, especially the week of the EPSC as I suspect I will be burned out on the sessions by Wednesday or so and looking for an excuse to do something fun...
